GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Guru Investment Theses on American International Group Inc

Steven Romick Comments on AIG - Apr 24, 2017

AIG (NYSE:AIG)’s fourth quarter results were disappointing, which caused its stock price to decline -3.44% in the first quarter, detracting -0.12% from performance in the period. However, AIG’s share price has increased slightly more than 20% in the trailing twelve month period. The company took an additional reserve to account for poorly underwritten Property & Casualty policies. Nevertheless, we were heartened to see that the board held management accountable and removed the CEO responsible. We continue to hold our AIG stake that trades at just 0.83x tangible equity.


From Steven Romick (Trades, Portfolio)'s first quarter 2017 FPA Crescent Fund commentary.

Bruce Berkowitz Comments on AIG - Aug 02, 2016

Except for last year’s large tax bill, we have little to complain about. Our views on AIG (NYSE:AIG) are well documented. Remaining warrants are attractive given (i) a 2021 expiry, repricing terms, and related stock price, and (ii) increases in underwriting margins, operational efficiencies, and share repurchases.

Finding new investments is always difficult. It’s certain to be so, but as opportunities emerge in new sectors and securities, our Funds have the necessary liquidity. The appendix to this letter shows performance and issuer data for each Fund. I look forward to providing additional information during our next conference call in October.



From Bruce Berkowitz (Trades, Portfolio)'s first-half 2016 letter to shareholders.

Bruce Berkowitz Comments on AIG - May 20, 2016

Bruce Berkowitz (Trades, Portfolio): As we have written in all of our letters, we bought AIG at substantial discount to tangible book value (“TBV”). We had a simple thesis that AIG still had a franchise value, and that AIG (NYSE:AIG) was worth at least TBV. We then started selling in 2014 as our thesis played out and AIG approached our estimate of TBV. That was always our game plan.



We have made a considerable amount of money in AIG, and AIG remains the largest position in the Fairholme Fund (Trades, Portfolio) in the form of long-dated, double-ratchet warrants, which we received during the recapitalization of AIG in 2011. It is my belief that these double-ratchet warrants have unique features regarding conversion price and conversion ratio, and they can potentially disproportionately benefit from future corporate actions of AIG including asset sales, capital distributions, and dividend payments.



Daniel Schmerin: It is clear you like the AIG warrants over AIG’s common stock.



What is your view on recent activist efforts?



Bruce Berkowitz (Trades, Portfolio): I’ve followed AIG for decades. The company’s configuration is unique. But I believe that underappreciated assets should be sold. I believe that corporate expenses need to be dramatically reduced. Less regulatory restrictions across the entire company would be quite beneficial. AIG can take a lot of actions, and we support all efforts to maximize shareholder value.



From Bruce Berkowitz (Trades, Portfolio)'s Feb. 23, 2016, Fairholme Fund (Trades, Portfolio) conference call.

Mario Gabelli Comments on American International Group - Feb 05, 2016

American International Group Inc. (1.5% of net assets as of December 31, 2015) (AIG – $61.97 – NYSE)(NYSE:AIG) is a multi-line insurance company, offering property and casualty and life insurance, and serving customers in more than 130 countries and jurisdictions. AIG’s annuity and private mortgage insurance businesses have good growth prospects. The company is well positioned as it has excess capital, sophisticated products, and broad global distribution. In addition, the company is committed to returning capital to shareholders with dividends and share buybacks. We believe it can increase these capital returns to shareholders, given greater stability of the business lines.

Bruce Berkowitz Comments on AIG - Feb 03, 2016

Fund shareholders have realized over $2 billion in gains from our investment in American International Group (“AIG”) common stock. Today, our remaining AIG (NYSE:AIG) stake is composed of double-ratchet, long-dated warrants (14.2% of Fund assets) received in connection with AIG’s 2011 recapitalization. These warrants are our largest position for three reasons: (i) AIG’s common shares continue to trade at a meaningful discount to the company’s tangible book value of nearly $80 per share; (ii) AIG has the potential to materially improve the cost structure of its property and casualty business, as its expense ratio remains higher than its peer group average; and (iii) future dividend increases and capital distributions will improve the conversion ratio and exercise price of the warrants until their 2021 expiry.

From Bruce Berkowitz (Trades, Portfolio)'s 2015 Annual Letter for the Fairholme Fund.

Steven Romick Comments on AIG Guru stock highlight
AIG (NYSE:AIG)’s fourth quarter results were disappointing, which caused its stock price to decline -3.44% in the first quarter, detracting -0.12% from performance in the period. However, AIG’s share price has increased slightly more than 20% in the trailing twelve month period. The company took an additional reserve to account for poorly underwritten Property & Casualty policies. Nevertheless, we were heartened to see that the board held management accountable and removed the CEO responsible. We continue to hold our AIG stake that trades at just 0.83x tangible equity.
